Partnerships for Innovation: Private-Sector Contributions to Innovation in the Highway Industry
[ NCHRP 20-05 (Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices) ]

  Project Data

This synthesis will be of interest to administrators, researchers, and private-sector business leaders in the highway industry. Information is presented on how the public and private sectors can promote innovation in the highway field. The highway industry needs to encourage on a national and state level the introduction of innovative new technologies in design, construction, operations, and maintenance. This report of the Transportation Research Board describes the current practices of federal, state, provincial, and local governments to foster innovation in the highway industry. Reasons for the very limited successes of the past are discussed, and suggestions for creating an industry environment in which innovation will take place are made.  This report is out of print and can be found at Order URL: http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/out_of_print.htm
